A simple weeknight pizza using a combo of fresh and pre-made ingredients for a convenient and delicious dinner for two!
Two pieces of pre-made naan flatbreads, topped with fresh homemade pesto, and roasted red peppers for a gourmet flatbread you can make at home in 30 minutes or less!
What is Naan Bread?
Naan is a unique flatbed dawning from Indian cuisine that is chewier in texture. Typically it is more nutrient dense than regular pita or white breads as it contains more fiber and protein. I find naan bread to be very sturdy and the perfect vessel to load up with pizza toppings.
What Ingredients are Needed for Naan Pesto Pizzas?
Naan: Buying these pre-made from the grocery store saves a ton of time and they are just as delicious as homemade naan. I pick mine up from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods.
For the Homemade Pesto: Fresh basil leaves, parmesan cheese, walnuts, olive oil, and a dash of salt and pepper blended together for a quick and easy fresh pesto sauce! Not feeling the homemade pesto tonight? Opt for a fresh store-bought pesto, usually found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.
Roasted Red Peppers & Mozzarella Cheese: Top the flatbreads with some juicy roasted red peppers and some mini mozzarella balls sliced in half.
